for the kingman. >> it's about foreign policy. the obama: administration now says terrorists were behind the murder of u.s. ambassador in libya, christopher stevens, should the u.s. have known more about what was going on in libarch better security for our people? what more do you think needs to be done to fight terrorism? >> look, karen, i have taken a classified brief so i cannot go into extensive details here but it's already apparent that we made mistakes. the president has come forward and taken responsibility for that. clearly more should have been done. what's important right now is we mourn the losses of the families, that we learn what happened. that we don't rush to judgment. we figure out -- we certainly will find the perpetrators and there will be justice for those that did this. then it's important that we learn from these experiences. i will tell you that i post military operations in libya last year. and i say that after very careful consideration and thought. i spent a lifetime in national security. i also think we need to think and act differently. absolutely we need the
mathematical formulas. >> i don't think they are soup human, but there was debates in the obama administration how big is the gap? how much do you need to fill it? how much do you do on your own or just to lay a floor and let the private sector do the rest, and to some extempt, there was an economic question and a political question, how many did you get congress to accept? how much are they willing to pass? some people on the lest are mad at larry summers because christina omer was suggesting you have to go over $1 trillion, and summers, they were like, hey, no way you're getting that number through congress, and, you know, the rovers of the world looked correct that if we were able to get more in there, we could be in a better place today. that's a counterargument that on paper, maybe that's true, but there's only so much the government can do to process that money in a constructive way so maybe you were hitting the ceiling of diminishing returns. you can only one run test at a time. you don't know who is right. i say as far as speed of government action is concerned, usually, they are too s
